Engage vs Microsoft Teams

Actually, the title is misleading as this isn’t really a head-to-head. It is just reflecting a common perception amongst organisations that as they have Teams, they don’t need an engagement solution.

The simple truth is that Teams, and products like Slack and Yammer, were developed for a very specific purpose – managing and progressing work. Much the same way as Engage was developed for a very specific purpose – looking after the people who are looking after that work.

To cast Teams and their ilk as an engagement tool is to seriously misunderstand and undervalue the importance of employee engagement, and put at risk the significant operational, financial, cultural and human gains to be made from a progressive people strategy.

Check out our Engage vs Teams guide for a detailed comparison of the two solutions and how Engage should be correctly viewed as a perfect overlay across all work/project-oriented applications.

Ultimately success in both spheres comes down to picking the right tool for the job.
